Abstract [en]

Andy Egan argues that neither evidential nor causal decision theorygives the intuitively right recommendation in the cases The Smoking Lesion, ThePsychopath Button, and The Three-Option Smoking Lesion. Furthermore, Eganargues that we cannot avoid these problems by any kind of ratificationism. Thispaper develops a new version of ratificationism that gives the right recommendations.Thus, the new proposal has an advantage over evidential and casual decisiontheory and standard ratificationist evidential decision theory.
